Playoff predictions Posted on 04-19-2005
Hershey's Milk Chocolate

Ok my NBA Heads...playoffs start this sunday. How do you think the playoffs will turn out. I know we are in for surprises, but there are some things that are just obvious will happen. My predictions for round 1: THE EAST: Miami vs. New Jersey: Miami was on a roll this year...they did have the best record in the NBA for a while, but they lost it after a few losses and Phoneix making a good run. I'm so disappointed in New Jersey..went from #2 last year to #8. I don't expect much from them. Jason Kidd and Vince Carter cannot do it by themselves...maybe next year when Jefferson comes back. Miami has too much fire power. Wade and Shaq makes a good combo and will be hard to beat. Miami also has some good defense, so it will be hard for the Nets to do anything good. I see this series as 4-1. Detriot vs. Philly: Detriot right now is on a 10 game winning streak. They are going to hand Inverson and his teams their behinds. AI is still one of the best players in the game today, but to be honest, when he isn't on the court, the team is horrible. Detriot big men (the Wallaces) will give it to them. Hamilton, Prince, Billups....this will be a quick series..a sweep. Boston vs. Indiana: This one is kinda hard for me. I think that Indiana can come out with the win for the series just because they have good young players who have a lot of heart (and hot heads). Boston is a good team...they haven't been this good since 2001-2002. I think this will be an entertaining series. I don't think that Reggie Miller will let his team go out in the first round on his final year. Washington vs. Chicago: This is going to be the best series of this round. I think that Chicago has come up from a long drought (since 98 ). The wizards have been doing the dam thing but so has chicago. Their defense is one of the best in the east. I think this is going to be a series that will go up to game 7. MY WEST PREDICTIONS: Phoenix vs. Memphis: This is going to be a sweep. The Suns have a fast paced game and I don't think that Memphis can handle it. This will be one of the most boring series because it will be a blow out. The only way this will be something to watch is if Nash gets hurts (God forbid). He is the reason why the team has done so well this season anyways. San Antonio vs. Denver: Denver is a good team. They won't be able to beat the Spurs because they have players that are stepping up even when Duncan isn't around. Ginobili, Parker, Horry...this won't be a sweep, but the Spurs will win. Sacramento vs. Seattle: Sacramento is my team, BUT I don't see them beating Seattle. Sacramento doesn't have Peja, but Bibby will be holding them down and so will Mobley, but I just don't see them going away with the win. Dallas vs. Houston: I see this as being one of the best series in the first round. Houston has pick themselves up and have won the last 7 games. T-Mac (my favorite player) brings out the best in his entire team. He has players around that is willing to help out as best they can. I think that Dirk and Finley will work hard to try and spoil Houston's run. I think that T-Mac and Ming will find a way to finally win a first round series.

YES SIR he was born in MUDVILLE...Robbins Il. He grew up 1 at his fathers crib on 135th. He actually is kinda bogus tho, cause he ain't gave his father NOTHIN. Lol his pops be in the barborshop talkin about him. He hooked up his best friend (brother of one of my co-workers) with a job in miami tho. But yea we get something even tho some people don't wanna claim him cause 'I hear' he was frontin, sayin he was from some other town, but I rather not believe that. His game is just too sick to do that.

hmmmmm....I'm not a prideful person at all but when it comes to sports I get cocky like a mug.....and with that being said... the Pistons suck... j/k....That was a good series and it went down to game 7. No excuses at all, the pistons put it down like champs. I'm going back into hater mode tho.....lose SPURS. LOOSSEE. I hope like everybody on both starting lineups get career ending injuries, then darko milichic becomes the finals MVP after running over the spurs reserves. I can dream......

This is exactly why I don't believe in NBA predictions cause you just never know. Everybody knew that Miami and Phoenix was going. But congrats to the Pistons. I'm rooting for them in the playoffs.
